The conference's co-sponsors include the White House Domestic Policy Council, the White House Millennium Council, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Trust for the Humanities, the Center for Corporate Citizenship of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Iscol Family Foundation, and Merrill Lynch Nonprofit Financial Services.
